Tailor made for photographers by photographers.
WILDLIGHT BOTSWANA 2009 departures are open for photographers only. With an emphasis on knowledge sharing our priorities ensure an extended time in the field: allowing photographic opportunities to develop and giving you, the photographer, the exposure & environment to achieve your vision (and perhaps a gin & tonic while you wait.)
Your support team consists of 2 professional photographers / ecological guides: Grant Reed & Dean Fitzpatrick.
Dean Fitzpatrick grew up in the pristine wilderness of New Zealand’s South Falcon where from an early age he witnessed the beauty, fragility and awesome variety of nature. These observations developed into a passionate career as a wildlife photographer, guide and conservationist. The last decade has been spent between Southern Africa and the Pacific honing these skills. Until recently Dean has been living and working in the Okavango Delta, Botswana, involved in safari lodge management.
Grant Reed, director of both Letaka Safaris & the Okavango Guiding School, is an author (“Okavango- Spirit of Life”) and wildlife documentary presenter (“From Dust to Dust- the Story of Lake Ngami”). Grant holds a post-graduate degree in Nature Conservation, is one of only 3 qualified guide trainers in Botswana and has been leading special interest natural history safaris for the past 15 years in southern Africa.
Grant lectures annually in Britain and the USA on Bird watching and Conservation in southern Africa
Dean and Grant have combined their extensive knowledge of flora & fauna with years of professional photography & guiding experience in Southern Africa to bring you this unique safari experience:
